I'll check for the post about running a webserver.  

I am running XP Pro......so, if I do the 'checking' as you say....I have 2 further questions;

1) what port do I use to access the clientraw.txt
2) where is it best to have WD save the clientraw file?

Update....

I am confused on what I have to setup....
- I have found a folder in my root C: directory that is called webshare, and it has a folder called "wwwroot".  What is this used for?  Can I access it via the following http through the clientviewer using "http://ip address:port/webshare/wwwroot/clientraw.txt"?

If your running XP Pro then IIS the Microsoft web server is part of this OS but you need to set it up.  I'm in Florida on vacation but I can attempt to guide you through it.  First off you need to install the software.  Go to start menu > settings > control panel > add remove programs.  Then select the windows setup tab.  Some where in the list should be something like IIS or something like web server.  Install this.  Let me know when you get this done and we'll go from here.

great, thanks greg
ah, so that is why you are so quiet on the forum, you are away on holiday....(heck i thought you thought that i was such a so and so you had walked away)
the daily sunshine hours should be working on the 3D grpah....
is for me.....

and i will incorporate the icon straight into the program so no need to have as separate files, and i will have option to have the icon match the windspeed instead

No I'm not going anywhere.  I saw the new 3d graph and I like it.  Now it will be easy to look back and see the cloudy durations.  The reason I haven't been saying anything is everything is working, plus March Madness (the NCAA tournament) is in full swing.  I'm originally from Kentucky and the Kentucky Wildcats are favored to win it all.  We'll  see.  I'm as nervous as a dog in heat but I hope we can hang in there and pull it off.  

Brian ,  
Did you say the traytemp is not woking for you?

Hi Brian.  No need to be paranoid. I suspect the reason it is so quiet is
that most are like me, program chugging along nicely.
No problems here.  LOL

I just tried your URL from here and it works perfectly.  Check the url and make sure it is correct and let me know if it continues to show NA.  I need to add a bit of error reporting to the app.  I have literally dozens of people at work using it.  Its a good window to the world when you work in a building without windows.

ok Greg...

I have installed the IIS component.  (I must admit, working with this stuff scares me a bit since I have been running so reliably!)  How tough is this to get going?  Is it likely to mess things up at all?

If not, what's next?

If you are runnning IIS be sure to keep up to date with security patches from MS.

I have been running IIS for 5 years and have never had a single problem.  As long as you change the port that iis runs on its not as risky as running a server on the default port 80.  

Now Right click on my computer > and select manage.  Then select Servcies and Applications.    Then Internet Information Services, then web sites.  Right click on default web site and select properties.

Change the TCP port to something like 8081.  This is waht I use and this is the number in the url you asked about in an earlier thread.  Like  http://12.213.334.33:8081/webpage.html

Next right click on default web site and select new > virtual directory.  This will bring up a wizzrd.  Point this virtual directory to the directory that houses your clientraw.txt file.  

Take defaults.  

When this is finnished you have a directory that can be accessed as a web file.  

Let me know when you get this done and we'll go from there.
